Babagana Monguno, National Security Adviser, has alleged that some funds meant to purchase arms under the leadership of the former service chiefs, are missing.
Monguno made the revelation in an interview with BBC Hausa.
He explained that the new service chiefs who recently assumed office did not meet the money for arm or equipment purchase as approved by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Monguno said preliminary investigation showed that the funds were missing and equipment or arms are nowhere to be found.
“Now that President Buhari has brought new people (service chiefs), hopely they will device some way. I’m not saying the former service chiefs diverted the money, but the money is missing. We don’t know how and nobody knows for now.
“The President will surely probe this matter. As we speak, the Nigerian Governors’ Forum too is also wondering where all the money went. I can assure you the president takes issues of this nature seriously.” he added.
